I woke up today craving one of these giant cream puffs from the Japanese bakery, Beard Papa's.
I had one Sunday night while catching up with a friend and they were so, so good. I'm no puff expert, and in fact I expected them to be too sweet, but I never turn down a dessert (strict policy). I was pleasantly surprised by the flaky pastry, and rich, but not too sweet cream filling. Beware: there's no glamorous way to consume a giant cream puff with delicious filling oozing out of it.
You can order them by the dozen, and we both agreed they would make an unexpected substitute for cupcakes at a party. Just pop a little paper flag on top and call it good.
